We all get one chance at childhood. Thankfully, I was very fortunate and had a pretty sweet one.
Favorite Childhood Memories
I remember when my parents bought a new refrigerator when I was like 4 years old… Jen and I had the time of our lives in the box it came in. We filled it with pillows and blankets and threw ourselves down the stairs in it! I’m pretty sure she made me go first to make sure it was “safe.” But then we decorated it and cut holes for windows and made an entire house out of that box. It was days and days of pure fun. I don’t think our parents had a clue that a cardboard box could bring so much joy.
But that’s what childhood is supposed to be all about, worry free, simple fun. I cannot imagine going through what so many children on this planet are feeling on a daily basis. This year alone, 3.1 million children will lose their chance to play forever. And all due to simple vitamin deficiencies.
I am so happy to have the opportunity to introduce Vitamin Angels to you. This wonderful foundation provides vitamins and minerals to Give Childhood back to children in need.
Vitamin Angels is raising funds through the Give Childhood campaign – running from Tuesday, December 3 through Tuesday, December 31st. Vitamin supplementation is a simple and cost-effective way to give childhood back to at-risk children. As little as 25 cents will give one child the vitamins he or she needs for the entire year.
$300,000 (which is like nothing in the grand scheme of things) is enough to Give Childhood to 1.2 million children around the world in the form of lifesaving vitamin supplements. Children shouldn’t have to worry about something so simple, yet vital for health. They should be able to innocently play like we did as kids.
So this year, let’s make a difference by visiting Vitamin Angels Give Childhood to make a donation that will help deliver essential vitamins and minerals to at risk children in need.
